5 DIY Caster Inspirations For Everyday Living
1. DOWNTOWN INDUSTRIAL LOFT
This Downtown industrial loft ignites the vintage revival style with modern finesse. Every piece of this living space acts in a supporting role to provide a particular look and feel. For an open floor plan like this and to leverage space, the mobile kitchen with casters in the background provides versatility and convenience.
2. ROLLING LOG GETAWAY
The log seating here helps break away from the norm of urban life seating pieces. Adding a set of casters to a log is something you don’t see everyday. Make sure that you choose polyurethane over caster iron caster wheels (such as these 4" CC Vintage casters) for hardwood flooring like this.
3. LAUNDRY ROOM CARTS
Thread and debris can be tricky with laundry room baskets without a caster with a thread guard. Having thread buildup get caught inside a caster wheel creates an inconvenience that disables a mobile laundry cart from doing what it was designed to do–have the mobility to enable ease of use, storage, and organization.
4. TREE STUMP COFFEE TABLES
Tree stumps can find new life through a DIY project. As seen above, three tree stump coffee tables are outfitted with 3" X 1-1/4" cast iron swivel casters. Make sure that you have the right wheel material for your floors though.
5. CLOCK TOWER LOFT
From city to city, abandoned commercial buildings are often repurposed as high-end living spaces within a city’s metropolitan area. The kitchen design of this clock tower loft is an adaptation of older materials into a modern environment. Seeing how this kitchen sink is attached to the island, it is highly likely that the casters were installed solely for aesthetic purposes.
As all of these inspirational pieces make clear, installing casters onto your unique creations makes for a unique, and often times, functional addition.
